Week 5 July 19 Tuesday Shares

We have a new intern family at the farm. Gabe, Maegan and Baby Liberty have joined us for at least the next three months and possibly longer. We're delighted to expand the farmily and welcome this new trio to the mix. 

On Saturday, we were a stop on the 2016 Eat Local Farm Tour. Mariah hosted around 50 visitors who made flower crowns, transplanted rosemary to take home, visited the falls and the barnyard and purchased jams and eggs to take home. It's important to us to share the farm with others. This model of stewarding the land that's owned by a non-profit is unique among CSA's. Cultivating a welcoming environment that is healing and serves as a sanctuary for those who visit and live here remains vital and core to our mission. 

Sundays are a great day to visit. We have two regular volunteers who work from 10-12, break for lunch, then head back out until 4. Farmer Carter determines an area of need and sends them home with gems from the fields. Please let me know if you'd like to join in some week! We would love to share a lunch with you and your family or friends. Hands in the ground makes for a respite from the onslaught of difficult news and allows folks to recharge before getting back to the task of contributing to the world in all the ways that we know our members do. 

Today in the half shares, you'll get chard, kale, cilantro, green beans, potatoes and onions. 

The full shares contain zucchini, cucumbers, kale, cilantro, green beans, potatoes and onions. 

Maple Share members will see their first quart of syrup and flower shares are also being delivered!
